Who are we?
We are Tsattine (Beaver) people working alongside settler academics to revitalize Tsattine culture in the Peace region of northwestern Alberta. We seek to better understand the history of bison hunting and human-animal relationships in northern Alberta as one way to understand the history of colonization and to promote healing. We aim to co-create knowledge through both traditional ways of knowing and Western science. Our work supports the revitalization of Tsattine language, land-based traditions and relationships between human and non-human persons. Our initiatives support the ongoing work of the Tsattine Resurgence Society.
